“We discovered a new way of travel”
Cheap, green and social, the electric bike allows to realize in Corsica routes impossible with a classic bicycle. For the first time in their lives, Stéphane and his girlfriend have chosen to forget the car and use the electric bicycle for all their trips in Corsica. After 9 Days and 500 Km travelled, beyond “having lived magical moments” Stéphane confides “having discovered places he would never have discovered by car”.
